Learn English in England

British produce in France is becoming more and more popular; last year British food exports to France reached £2.2bn a year, double the figure from 2000. An example of the popularity of British food shows in Marks and Spencer’s stores, the Champs Elysees store sells more chicken tikka masala than any branch in the UK. BLT sandwiches are a very popular option for British people and now French, the fifth highest number of BLT sandwiches are sold in French store.

 The popularity of British food in France may come from the amount of French people living and learning English in England. As English courses are becoming popular to the rest of Europe, the younger generation are starting to enjoy the way of life in England including the food. A third of a million French people live in London, these people will bring back stories of the different restaurants they have experienced, and Indian food in particular as much of France lacks this type of food. French supermarkets are stocking up on more UK products; some have even dedicated England sections, things such as baked beans, Marmite, Branston Pickle, and London Pride.  There are an estimated 150,000 British residents in France with 200,000 second home owners.
